Yaar Pata Hai, strongly condemns the agenda of News Channels and journalists who try to put anyone down. This Interview rather Interrogation of Sunny Leone united India in one Voice and proved Bhupendra Chaubey that India respects women, and we don’t judge women on their past or according to their profession.
Kindly stop using the word “Controversial” every time Sunny Leone’s name is taken. Grow Up Journalists, TRPs are not the only thing that matters.
CNN IBN’s Hot Seat
Here are some of the questions which will make you feel amazed and disgusted about this Interviewer who shamelessly asks a series of demeaning questions in a 22 minutes grilling session.
This is how Bhupendra Chaubey tries to get it out of Sunny Leone
Interviewer: Kapil Sharma had, at one point, not felt comfortable shooting with you because he thought he had family audiences and Sunny Leone really didn’t fit into the description of family audience. Is this true?
Sunny: Sure. I actually don’t care about anybody else’s inhibtions or what they’re insecure with, if they want to work with me or not. It actually doesn’t affect me at all. I work every single day and I’m very happy for that.
Well Interviewer is not interested in her answers it seems as he is not getting what he wants from her, so he interrupts her and tries to put his words into her mouth
Interviewer: The director of Ek Paheli Leela said that he went to a lot of big stars to perform with you and they didn’t want to. Did that make you feel bad? While the commercial value of your work certainly seems to be doing quite well, but there is a lot of resistance and inhibitions about you. How do you deal with that?
Sunny: Sure. I actually don’t care about anybody else’s inhibitions or what they’re insecure with, if they want to work with me or not. It actually doesn’t affect me at all. I work every single day and I’m very happy for that.
So here is a series of interruptions or we can say desperate measures to break her
Interviewer: You think an Aamir Khan would ever work with you?
Sunny: Probably not.
Sunny: Because of my background –
Interviewer: Would you want to work with Aamir Khan?
Sunny: Of course, who wouldn’t?
Interviewer: So you would want to work with Aamir, but Aamir would never want to work with you
Sunny: I don’t know, you’d have to ask him that!
Interviewer: How would this reflect on you, then?
Sunny: It doesn’t affect me. I’d still be an Aamir fan. I’m still going to watch all his movies.
Now Bhupendra Chaubey is desperate and begging
Interviewer: Do you not sometimes get affected by the fact that your past – your past that you were this porn queen – will continue to haunt you?
Sunny: But I
Interviewer: Or maybe continue to pull you back?
Interviewer: Or maybe you could’ve gone far higher?
Sunny: But maybe you’re the only person that… It’s the press and the media that says ‘hold back’ or ‘haunt’. I’ve never said haunt, I’ve never said held back. I’m not held back.
Interviewer: Is your past now literally, figuratively, in every way – a thing of the past now? Is that something you think about? Let me put it this way, if I was to turn the clock back – would you still do what you did?
Sunny: One hundred percent:
Interviewer: One hundred percent. So you would still do the kind of shoots, the kind of work before you came into Bollywood?
Sunny: Everything I’ve done in my life has led me into this seat. It’s a chain reaction that happens. Everything has been a stepping stone to something bigger or better. Or you want it to be bigger or better. That’s what life is about – you make decisions that lead you to who you are as an adult. I don’t have any horror stories – I wasn’t abused, I wasn’t beaten, I wasn’t molested .
Interviewer: I sometimes wonder, and pardon me if I’m in anyways being offensive here, but how many people would think in terms of growing up to be a porn star?
Sunny: No one.
Interviewer: And you became.
Sunny: It wasn’t something I aspired to do –
Interviewer: So I want to know from you, how did that happen?
Sunny: It just kinda happened. I met an agent and when I saw these photos of these women, I didn’t think this is vulgar. I didn’t think that, oh this is wrong. I thought of it as being beautiful, and I thought they’re sexy, they’re beautiful, they’re free, they’re doing whatever they want to do. And that’s how I saw it.
Interviewer: There are many housewives [on social media] for instance, there are many Indian – not just housewives, many Indian married women who look at Sunny Leone as a threat towards their husbands. And they believe their husbands are all gonna be taken away by Sunny Leone.
Sunny: Sorry, I don’t want your husband at all. I have my own. I love him, he’s hot, he’s sexy, he’s very smart, he’s very talented. Sorry ladies, I don’t want your husband.
Interviewer: People believe that you’re actually not an actor, that you’re still not an actor. Some are accusing you of literally lowering the level of the fine art of cinema. You believe that? Is that a just criticism?
Sunny: Uh… again, the thing is that whatever somebody’s opinion is about me, I actually don’t care. Because I’m working everyday. I have three movie releases this year—
Interviewer: So what is this about Sunny? Is this just about money?
Sunny: This is not just about money –
Interviewer: Ultimately, this is about money.
Sunny: This is about something I’ve always wanted to do. and when you work, just like you’re paid to sit to talk to me, I am paid to sit to talk to you. And that’s just how it works. At the end of the day, it is business. We all work because we want to feed our families. But when you’re in the art of cinema, there has to be a passion there and that passion’s always been there.
Interviewer: Do you look at yourself as an artist?
Sunny: I look at myself as an entertainer.
Interviewer: You’re an entertainer. You know in typical Bollywood terms, you’re an item girl. Are you an item girl?
Sunny: I don’t see myself as anybody, just a girl who wants to work.
Interviewer: Do you believe that you have a body and you believe that it’s your body that will ultimately take you everywhere?
Sunny: But it’s everybody’s face and body that takes you everywhere when you work in entertainment. Every single actor or actress… their skill level, the determination, or whatever their training in life separates them from one actor to the next. But it is the beautiful face that we see on television that we’re attracted to watch that we want to turn the channel to their show or their program or their movie.
Sunny Leone answered all these questions so gracefully that all the misconceptions world had about her will be diminished! She has proved that she is more than just a body.
Aamir Khan doesn’t have any problem working with Sunny Leone.
“I think Sunny conducted herself with a lot of grace and dignity in this interview…. I wish I could have said the same about the interviewer. And yes Sunny, I will be happy to work with you. I have absolutely no problems with your “past”, as the interviewer puts it. Stay blessed. Cheers,” Aamir Khan posted on Facebook
Sunny Leone’s “rockstar” answers in a “sexist” interview has turned on not just Twitter users in India but in Vietnam, UAE and Latvia too!

Sunny Leone displays far more dignity than these self appointed moral custodians of society.

Very unfair& rude interview with Sunny Leone on CNN IBN.She is taking it on her chin sportingly,obviously in the interest of her coming film
— Rishi Kapoor (@chintskap) January 17, 2016
That was literally NOT an interview.. Just hyper opinionated statements with a question mark at the end!!! No Grace? Chivalry? Ridiculous!

How beautifully u held your own in that stupid interview @SunnyLeone .Some1 should have taught him how to respect a woman when he was a kid.
— Sushant S Rajput (@itsSSR) January 19, 2016
As a live broadcaster, you must be objective & rid yourself of all bias before an interview. Bhupendra's every word reeks of a dodgy agenda.

Here's hoping Mr Chaubey's next interview explores something other than his own prejudice.

Hey everyone, I just wanted to say thank you so much for all the love, all the support you’ve given me over the last couple of days. I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for you, and I wouldn’t be here without your love. Just as much love as you’re giving me, I want to give you all the love in the world back – so, I love you guys.
She was on the show for the promotion of her upcoming Bollywood adult comedy film ‘Mastizaade‘
We do not find anything controversial about Sunny Leone, or anything about her past. Journalists of different Channels should refrain from using the word “controversial” every time they take Sunny Leone’s name.
She’s the first Bollywood Actor who decided to review her ad Contract with Tobacco products and stop endorsing it after Delhi Government had written to six big superstars of India. This shows what this woman is made of. We respect you. We love you. Keep doing what you do!
